I just read a neat post where at the end the user asked if there was anyone else in his area to go on rides with… This struck me as a neat idea that doesn’t seemed to be addressed anywhere that I can find…
Can we start a new forum/group for finding riding partners?
Wether it’s for a day through a new area or city, or meeting up every other day at a certian trail, I think it could make things alot more interesting for us that dont coagulate at a skate park or where ever and do street or flat all day with our crew. (not that I am saying theres anything wrong with that)
But like when I come out to Oregon this summer for a few days, it would be neat to meet up with someone from here to show me a nice long bike trail or some tech MUni… Or even to find a local guy/girl to ride on saturdays with.
Who do we talk to? Admin, are you reading this? Mod’s, any hints?
For site related questions or suggestions there is a forum. Just go to the bottom of the forums page and you’ll see it.
As for a meetup forum…
There are a lot of people who start meetup threads in this forum, but I could see putting all of these kind of threads into a “places/events” forum. There could even be sub forums for countries/regions/states/provinces/or other locales.
I think this would be a good feature. I imagine a section where a member could create a folder for their locale and any local announcements or invites could be added to it. In contrast to the announcements page it would serve as a local archive to members and groups in different areas. It would also alleviate the need for creating new RSU threads or dredging up old ones just to give a shout out for a ride.
